    Nice, quiet area, if not shot in the distance. There should be some wolf packs, which are spotted now and then in Lopau.
    The place was dissolved because of the practice site; you can still see several former village houses.
    Nearby there are several very quiet and deep in the forest, lonely lakes.

    Every year, the city of Munster organizes a so-called "people's cycling" with the German Armed Forces and in this case the cyclist and the "Komootler" have the opportunity to take a closer look at the village of Lopau (Munster-Nord).
    On the Internet, words like "ghost village" or "decayed" are no longer applicable and you can easily recognize them on my pictures. The remaining houses and courtyards are very well kept or are currently being renovated!
    (As of 07/2018 are areas of the old school and an outbuilding equipped with scaffolding).
    Otherwise ... the village was actually first mentioned in 1293 and only in 1983 did the last steadfast inhabitants leave the village!
    Now it is used and maintained by the Federal Authority ... after all, because Lopau as well as the Sültinger mill (Munster South - komoot.de/highlight/471142) are unfortunately not accessible to the public ( except s.oben!).
